hi everyone, thank you so much for the awesome tutorials and for the inspiration. my hubby bought me this wonderful new sewing machine (that fits the palm of my hand) and i tried my luck, im really enjoying it. below are some of my work - newbie work. = ) hope you like 'em.

bag 1 - from the messenger bag tutorial

bag 2 - the idea i got from the hobo bag - i wanted one where the strap starts from the body of the bag and sort of ends in the shoulder. oh and also this comes from an old skirt with a really great texture.

bag 3 - same as bag 2 - the belt in the lower portion comes from the waist portion of the skirt - i just tied the strap at the top as it was too long!

bag 4 - this one comes from the skipping bag tutorial (love that bag!) only i couldn't figure out how to attach the bottom, so i "skipped" it. will try it again next time.. but in the meantime, here's what came out of it.

thanks again for the really really awesome tutorials. and thanks for looking! hope you liked it!

I like the fabric on the first bag, and its cute how you added the belt to the third one!  Cheesy Good job.

They look fantastic (even if you weren't new at sewing). Wow, I always thought those tiny little machines didn't really work - looks like you are the master of them. What kind is it?

So you must tell us - what is the name of this little sewing machine that you seem to be getting such excellent results from?
